(Echoes of an Expedition in Greece)

-by the Gartzau Order of Great Flights-

If “meteoros” means “suspended in the air”
and “meteora” means “high in the air”
then certainly
Meteora is not the feminine of Meteor!
(God forgive me!)
Thus, sky lovers ask themselves:
What else can be…?

-Andrei Dorian Gheorghe-

The connection between the meteor showers
and the Meteora monasteries?
Sometimes it is better to confess like so:
I don’t know.

-Victor Chifelea-

Perhaps one of the reasons for which
those places were named Meteora
is for the glory…
of astropoetry!

-Constantin Huth-

Now I really understand that
one of the finest challenges in life is
to watch a meteor shower
over the Meteora monasteries.

-Andrei Dorian Gheorghe-
